Olympic Eyewear Explains the Inner Workings of Sunglasses

There are several factors to take into consideration when studying the inner workings of sunglasses.

  • Cheap vs. Expensive Sunglasses – No matter the prices, sunglasses are designed to do the same thing: protect the eyes from harmful UV rays. UV light causes damage to the retinas and corneas. As long as the sunglasses offer proper UV protect, despite the price, they will provide the protection required to help deflect cancer rays from entering the eyes.
  • Intense LightBulk sunglasses help to provide necessary protection from harmful, intense light rays. When the eye is subject too much light, the iris naturally closes which causes squinting. This can ultimately damage the retina. It is important that people consider purchasing high-quality sunglasses that block light from entering the eyes – by as much as 97% – to help avoid any short- or long-term eye damage.
  • Glare – Additionally, sunglasses help provide protection from glare, such as water, bright spots, snow or other distractions. Wholesale sunglasses that feature polarization help reduce glare.

The eyes see color in three significant ways. The first is through direct light, which can ultimately wash out details and make it difficult to focus. The second is reflected light, which bounces off a reflective object and then enters the eyes. This too is difficult to perceive details and can occur with glass, white sand, water or snow. The third is ambient light that bounces and scatters in several directions and does not appear to have any direct source. This can include light from a city.

Sunglasses can help reduce and eliminate the ultraviolet portion of the color spectrum, making it comfortable to view reflected light. Polarization light, such as reflections off water or snow, are reduced, making it more comfortable for people to view surfaces directly.

When people purchase sunglasses at wholesale, there are several factors for them to take into consideration, including the following:

  • Tints – Gray tints are excellent all-purpose tints.
  • Yellow Gold Tints – These lenses help reduce blue lights, which bounce and scatter light, creating blue hazes. Ultimately, blue light causes color perception distortions.
  • Amber and Brown Tints – Good general tints, these help absorb high frequently colors, but also increase clarity and contrast.
  • Green Tints – Filtering some blue light, these help reduce glare.
  • Purple and Rose Tings – These help offer the best contrast against blue or green backgrounds, making them ideal for water skiing or hunting.

Olympic Eyewear offers an excellent selection of wholesale designer sunglasses in a variety of styles and colors.
